    Firstly, is it really necessary for HMP-A to check for program updates every two hours and fifteen minutes? How about once a day? Or better yet, how about the ability to set how often it checks?

    Second, I'd recommend 443 for the update checks as well. Given the nature of the modern age, that stuff probably should be signed. Just in case.

    If you use v3.7, it has a real-time cloud scanner.

    Depend which build you use.
